Rainy Day Friday

Today, I have decided to cancel my classes because the rain had been pouring non-stop since last night. I am worried that there will be so much traffic and flooding that my students might get stranded somewhere. Also I am thinking that there might be a suspension of classes mid-afternoon and at least I did not go to school and end up doing nothing. This is why I decided to cancel my classes for my benefit and for the students.

I just hope that all my students were able to get my message as well as the e-mail containing listening exercises and a practice dialogue. I do hope that those will help their listening skills in French. Well I am done sending them those exercises an hopefully they will get to listen to it.

So for today, I am just going to think of activities for the coming week for my students. The next lessons would not be that easy but I am hoping to be able to make French fun so that it would be easier for them to learn it. The next lessons will also be more practical and will hopefully help them appreciate why French is fun to learn.

Well I do hope that I will be able to finish everything on this lazy rainy Friday.

Finding Inner Peace

“Anything is possible when you find inner peace” -Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda 2

I really couldn’t say I have found inner peace but lately my life has become more peaceful than before. I am not saying that it is easier because I know that there will be more difficult things for me in the future. This is why I want to find inner peace so that I could face all those difficulties and overcome them. I do think that with a mindset like this, it would lessen my worries of the difficulties that are about to come in my life.

I know that there are things in life that I could not  control and this could be annoying. Also, I think that letting go of the things that I can’t control will make it better for me. However this does not mean, that I will just leave myself to fate because I still do think that it’s still the choices we make that shape up our destiny. Letting go of control does not mean that you should make other control you. It only means that you should remember that there is a limit to the things that can be controlled and insisting on controlling these things will only lead to disappointment and frustration.

I hope to find my inner peace so that I can face all the difficulties that life throws at me.

Things That Interest Me

“Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things that revolve around love.”- Marc Chagall

Yes, I do believe that only love interests me because I think that being interested in hate is just a waste of time. I have decided a long time ago that I will try as much as possible not to hate people because in reality it is only me who is getting affected. However this does not mean that I will like everyone because I think that hate is not the opposite of liking someone rather it is indifference wherein we really do not care about the person that we hate. I think that indifference is way worse than hate but it does not have the bad effects on me as a person because it does not make me carry in myself a bad emotion or feeling towards other people.

There are a lot of things that I really find interesting that I really like. Most people would see the things that I like to be somewhat weird or hard to understand. I understand how they feel and this is why I really don’t force into them what I think is interesting or fun for me. This might also be one of the things why most people think that I am an aloof person. It is okay for me to be called weird but what I really do not like is that when people say bad things about me which came from things that they do not understand at all. Maybe those bad things stem from their own fear of the unknown and they unwillingness to open up their minds to understand the things that  really define me as a person.

So let me say to those people  that I am a person who might be hard to understand and I understand why people seem to think of it that way. I am not the type of person who will force myself in to a locked door and would rather wait for that door to open up and let me in. Just open that door and be sincere so that it will be easier for me to show the real me so that I will be better understood.
